It's called freedom of speech. You are wrong. Good reporting is a thing of the past and I guess good editorials are too. Too many of your editorials sound fresh and immature lately. Like that Cheese commercial. This is one of them.

This robo call was an insult to every County resident because it was meant to rile people up based on lies. The CSEA should be embarrassed for their unethical actions.

How about publishing the CSEA number so that we can call them during "appropriate hours" with whatever is on our mind. I'm sure they wouldn't mind hearing from us on every issue that we choose to embrace.

We need to separate union envy from the issue.

We also need elected and appointed officials who don't care how they look politically but vote their conscience.

Let's see what everybody thinks about cleaning up the toxic waste on a site in Jamestown that will cost taxpayers over a million dollars for just that one site. How do people in Fredonia feel about that? What say you Catman??

We need public officials who separate fact from fantasy then act accordingly. The CSEA is using the politics of fear and smear to try and keep their own bed feathered with union dues at the expense of the taxpayer. As for a Jamestown waste site-where?

The cost of the environmental cleanup is estimated to be around $1,264,000 for just this one site. Project work will be done in 2014-15.

The site is currently inactive. Chautauqua County obtained the property through foreclosure in 2001. The .22 acre site is located at 2241 Washington St., Jamestown. The site is located south of Pal Joey's. It was operated as a dry cleaners from 1931 until 1999.

According to the NYSDEC website- there are 10 highly contaminated sites all around the County including the old C&B Cleaners. The remediation will be done by the DEC funded by the Superfund Program. Your point? How does this relate to robo calls?

The county home will be sold. The legislators who go against the voters wishes will be voted out of office and the will of the voters will be advanced.

Robo calls, lies and distortion are the last gasping breath of the union.

Whitney, cornell and hoyer, remember those names in Nov. Not long and our voice will be heard in a democratic way. Simply vote.

Cornells distortions, union distortions, whitneys union connections and hoyers socialism are at the root of their not voting as their people would have them. They have been proven wrong, caught in their lies and distortions. If the union is going to be bothering us at home, i have a problem with that. The home must be disposed of to stop this union harassment

Thank you The Post Journal for reporting the robo calls so everyone in the county knows who is behind the calls. Im sure some would like to silence the PJ.

What a shame that the patients are stuck in a one star home. Google the county home ratings report and view all the violations against the home.

As predicted, now the home may have to be shut down and we can thank hoyer, cornell and whitney.

The kids in dunkirk schools would have benefited having the property sold by increasing the property tax base by 16 million, we could have added new services benefiting the patients and bringing in new people to the area benefiting local businesses.

A big thank you cornell, hoyer and whitney.

Funny how we have an editorial about robo calls from a union while robo calls from people like Newt Gingrich and the like are ignored.
